Trump approved operation that disabled Russian troll farm during 2018 midterms
 
After the Mueller report dispelled the myth of Russian collusion for rational people the Resistance retreated to Trump's not doing anything to protect our future elections from Russian interference. But wait.

Quote:

President Donald Trump personally signed off on a U.S. military cyber operation that blocked internet access for a Russian troll farm during the 2018 midterm election, multiple sources briefed on the matter told NBC News.
A bit of background on the Internet Research Agency (IRA) troll farm.

Quote:

The IRA has been charged by special counsel Robert Mueller with interfering in the 2016 election. Financed by a Kremlin-connected oligarch, Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the St. Peterburg-based company employed Russians who posed as Americans on social media and sought to sow division in U.S. politics by launching and amplifying extreme messages at the far ends of the political spectrum, according to federal prosecutors.

Even NBC news admits the action against the troll farm was part of a broader program to combat Russian interference. But don't expect the Resistance to acknowledge it, Orange man bad. :rolls

Quote:

The military operation against the IRA was part of a larger effort by Cyber Command, led by Gen. Paul Nakasone, to strike against attempts to interfere in U.S. politics ahead of the midterm elections, the sources said.

Trump approved the broader effort, but he also signed off on the specific operation to strike the Internet Research Agency, a U.S. official with direct knowledge told NBC News.

It's been established that Obama knew of the Russian interference prior to the election and did nothing. Another place the anti Trumpers shouldn't tread.

That's not true. He told Putin to "Stop it". And Obama being the Messiah that the left believed he was, Putin most definitely heeded the warning. :sar2
